3DXChina2012 will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 5 – 7 October 2012 in Xi An City, Shan Xi Province, China. Xi An is located in the middle of China and there are direct flights from Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, all take about 2hours flight time.
China is such a massive country that it has become customary to change the location each year in order to take 3D to as many areas as possible. 3DXChina 2010 was in Shenzhen and 2011 in ZhuHai, hence the move to a more central location for 2012. The timing of the event has also moved forward by one month in order to encourage many 3D Fans to attend the event during the Chinese National Holidays, and the famous tourist city of Xi An will ensure that their other half can enjoy some quality time locally.
Building on the proven 3DX/3D Masters format, Chinese pilots will enter for Sportsman Class and Experts Class to fly Set Manoeuvres and Freestyle Rounds. The highly successful International Class will be repeated, where Entrants will fly Set Manoeuvres, Freestyle and Flight to Music Rounds. This International Class has proved to be an opportunity for International Pilots to show to an appreciative Chinese audience 3D flying at World Class, with invited pilots from the World’s Best.
The event will be high-profile, with invited 3D Masters Judges from Europe and USA. China is the World’s most important developing market for AeroModelling, and 3DX China is intended to provide Sponsors with an opportunity to talk and to do business. In addition to the 3DX Competition, there will be organised Demonstration Flights for Sponsors to show off their products in a ‘Smackdown’ environment throughout the weekend. Designated Pilots will have plenty to do, with Competition Flying, Demonstration Flying plus an unofficial Night Flying Event.
